Lynne McGranger has been gracing our screen for almost 30 years on Home And Away, and her character Irene Roberts has become a household name as a result.
While we've watched Irene's life play out on the popular soap, Lynne has kept her personal life relatively private.
That's all about to change however, because Lynne is set to lift the lid on moments from her childhood to her career, and everything in between, in a newly announced memoir book called Acting Up.
"I have written a cheeky little memoirs book," Lynne shared on Instagram this week. Instagram
"So I have written a book! Acting Up," Lynne announced via Instagram.
"Out November and I am so excited! Pre orders are open NOW! Watch this space for my book cover reveal!"
The actress also uploaded a video of herself to make the announcement, and said: "Last year in lockdown while all of you were learning how to bake... I have written a cheeky little memoirs book."
"It's called Acting Up and it's just a little bit about my life from when I was very, very young to now," she explained.
'Acting Up' will be released on November 2 this year, published by Echo Publishing, with Lynne revealing the cover with her fans.
Lynne's incredible cover was announced too. Instagram
According to Allen & Unwin's website, 'Acting Up: Me, Myself & Irene' is a "warm, hilarious and intimate look inside the life of one of Australia's living TV legends".
"With humour, honesty and self-deprecating charm, one of Australia's best known TV actresses lifts the lid on life - both on-screen and off."
Lynne's new book will talk about her career and gig as Irene on Home And Away - a role she has had since 1993. Seven
The book's description also notes that Lynne's story will include an Aussie childhood full of "fad diets (tuna, milk and oranges, anyone?)" to the relationship heartaches, career disasters and difficult choices that would "change her life forever."
Lynne's announcement was met with support from her friends and co-stars, including Johnny Ruffo. Instagram
Lynne's fellow Home and Away co-stars and friends couldn't be more excited for the book, and took to the comments under her post to share their support.
"Cant wait to read it, is there anything you cant do," Johnny Ruffo penned.
His girlfriend Tahnee Sims was right behind him and commented: "So awesome! Can't wait to read."
"Best bloody book I'm ever going to read!" Courtney Ally said.
